wade into this issue, one of the cases they can hear is the appeal of california's prop 8, the ballot metro that bans same-sex marriage. what's at stake? is. >> the first word is if, and so you have to reiterate that we don't know if that decision to take up this case is going to come today or even this term. it could and it might, and there's speculation that it will, but if the supreme court has anything, it's unpredictable, and on the proposition 8 case, there's a specific question. can a state referendum abolish same-sex marriage after the courts have already ruled that it's legal? remember, that statewide vote to ban gay marriage was in response to courts in california legalizing same-sex marriage. assuming the supreme court sticks to this specific issue, it would have big implications for, say, california, but wouldn't necessarily be a sweeping ruling that would impact same-sex marriage all over the country. >> joe, talk a little bit about these cases that are challenging the federal defense of marriage act, known as doma. this is essentially the law that defines marriage betwee
